Below is a list of our available Labrador Retrievers. If you don't find the new friend you're looking for on this page, check out our Coming Soon Labs. We typically have approximately 30 Labs in our rescue program at any given time. Labs come into the program and are adopted daily, so this list is ever-changing.
Click each picture to find what our foster families have to say about each of our Labs. Since we don't have a shelter, all our dogs are in foster homes. Our foster parents provide as much information as possible on the behaviors and traits of our dogs.
The adoption fee for an adult Lab is $275. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $350.
If you are interested in meeting one of our Labs, the next step is to complete an adoption application. Adoption information and application is found here. If you have questions about the adoption application process, send an email to our Applications Team.

Sunshine - 9.6 Year Old Female
Hi everyone! I’m Sunshine, but my foster mom calls me baby girl because I’m so adorable. They tell me I’m 9 years old, but I don’t know what they are talking about, I think I’m 5. My favorite thing in the whole wide world is playing ball. I make it really easy on you, you can just bounce it off the wall and I will catch it and bring it back to you! It’s so fun!
I love to be inside and just be with you whenever I can. I love my foster mom, but I love my dad even more, he stays home with me a lot and we get to hang out. I have proven to be great in the house and have never touched anything that wasn’t mine. I did try counter surfing once, but I got in trouble, so I don’t do that anymore. I will sleep in your bed if you let me, but my foster parents don’t like this, so they taught me to sleep in my own bed.
I barked a lot when I first came, I was nervous and frustrated. Now, I rarely bark cause I’m so comfy in my foster home. I need an extra special family, who will love me a lot. I have allergies, so I need special care, and I may be allergic to cats, so no cats. I want someone who will give me exercise and play ball with me. I’m really a good dog, just need lots of love.
From the foster parents: Sunshine needs good structure and boundaries. She is well behaved, but may challenge you at first. She know sit, stay, down, drop it, “NO”, and takes food from your hand gently. (She does not always take the ball so gently though, she gets really excited). She would do better with a family without small children.
Garrison - 2.6 Year Old Male
Hello! My name is Garrison. I try very hard to be good and my foster mom says I am a sweet boy. I do have a secret… I’m nervous about meeting new people. I’m looking for that special person who can help me be more confident and trusting. I take treats very gently. I love to play and would love another dog around to help me be comfortable… but probably not an alpha dog. I would probably do better in a home without kids. My greatest wish is to be in a home with someone who could spend a lot of time with me! I have done really well with my foster family and am so looking forward to having a family of my own. If you are the lucky one to help me, you will have a very loyal and loving companion! I really want to be Man’s Best Friend to someone!
Argento - 7.3 Year Old Male
Argento is a sweetheart of a dog. He is always ready for a cuddle or belly rub. “Argie,” as we call him, is a tough dog. He has battled cancer and is now ready to find a good home in which to settle down.
Argento loves to play fetch with his squeaky toy rabbit. He enjoys walks around the neighborhood. He lives in a home with a cat and young children. He can be a bit clumsy around them, but he is always there with a lick. Argie does have a sweet tooth for trash cans and loaves of bread. Overall he is a very loving boy who is ready for that special forever family to take great care of him!
Paula - 8.3 Month Old Female
Hi, I'm Paula aka 'Bad Girl' ; ) When I was brought to the DFW Lab Rescue, they discovered I had a pelvic fracture so I spent a lot of time resting. Now, I'm an energetic active puppy that needs a lot of attention. I love playing with all dogs and I am submissive. My foster brother Garrison and I love to play hard but sometimes he lets me know he's had enough.
If you will let me, I will be more than happy to lay on your lap even though I will be a big girl. I also like to sleep under the covers; my foster mom thinks I act like a cat, I just like to stay warm. I also like to sleep as close to the human as I can, constantly touching. Foster mom has given me a nickname, 'bad girl', because I get into trouble when I'm bored but she still thinks I'm a sweet heart. When my foster parents leave the house, they put me in a crate because I like to explore and chew things that do not belong to me. I am lucky because my foster parents spend a lot of time working from home so I do not spend a lot of time in the crate. I need a home that has as much energy as I do and understands puppy behavior from aggression. Small kids might find me too rough unless they have been around large active puppies. Sometimes I might mistake an arm for a chew toy. I do need to take a class on manners but I'm willing to learn if you will put the time and effort in to teaching me. Foster mom has been taking me to the dog park and I really enjoy it. So if you consider bringing me into your family, occasionally, doggy daycare and trips to the dog park would be a good idea.
Izzie - 6.3 Month Old Female
Who is ready for some serious puppy cuteness? I'm Izzie -- a fun-loving, smart, sweet, energetic young girl looking for an active family with people who want to play, play, play, teach me some more commands like stay, down, come and fetch, and go on lots of walks. I already know sit and shake and will do those easily. I'd prefer lots of playmates as I love being part of a pack but one other doggie friend will do just as well. I mastered a doggie door at my first foster's house, but she was dealing with two other dogs who needed lots of rest going through heart worm treatment, so I went to a new foster's home. My new foster doesn't have a doggie door, but I have taught her that when I go to the back door, I am needing a potty break. If she isn't paying attention, I will bark to let her know I need to go out. My ideal home would be one where I am not alone for more than 4 hours at a time as I am still a young pup and like to go out frequently to potty or run around and play with my foster siblings. I am not crazy about the crate when you are home with me, so I will let you hear about it but I will go in for a treat when you need to leave. I am living with some big older dogs right now who like to lay around and sleep a lot, so they have taught me the benefits of being able to take it easy when it is down time around here. I sleep on a dog bed on the side of my foster's bed and am pretty good there. I sleep through the night most nights and love to sleep up on the human bed when I am allowed. I love the pillows and couches so it would be pretty hard to convince me that the floor is a better place, but I have been known to stretch out on the tile next to my foster brother and nap there when he is. We are working on not jumping up when I first see my foster family and I would really benefit from some training as I am very trainable, super sweet affectionate girl who will fit right in with a family that wants to make me a serious family member.
Onyx - 6.3 Year Old Male
Onyx is a very sweet and gentle dog and has blended into his foster family’s home quite well. He is a very independent and laid back dog and would be the perfect companion for someone who wants a low maintenance dog. Onyx is very good with his human foster sisters, ages 9 and 13, and keeps the oldest one “company” at night. Like any other lab, he loves to be scratched, rubbed, and given lots of love, which he gets plenty of from his foster family! Onyx also loves riding in the car and when he tires of having his face out the window, he will just curl up in a ball in your backseat and take a little nap! Onyx gets along with his foster sister (7yo chocolate lab) and brother (3yo Rottweiler) but is mostly disinterested in playing and will let them know when he isn’t in the mood. Onyx would probably prefer to be the only dog in the house. Onyx loves to go on walks and to go in the backyard and chase squirrels up trees and is just as content being outdoors as he is indoors.Onyx’s foster family learned the hard way that Onyx is a “counter surfer” so you will need to make sure that all goodies (and even other items you may not consider to be a goody) are completely out of reach. Onyx will go into a kennel but doesn’t really like it all that much. But, if nothing is within his reach, he is good to be left in the house. He is completely potty trained and has had no accidents since he has been with his foster family.
When Onyx first came to the rescue, he had an ear infection and a yeast infection that made parts of his skin appear to be “elephant-like.” The good news is that the wonderful vet says his ear infection is almost healed and his skin has never looked better! Onyx’s foster mom is giving him a bath with a special shampoo that continues to help his skin. Since he’s been with his foster family, he looks like a completely different dog and it has been such a treat seeing him get better.
Hector - 1.7 Year Old Male
Janie - 5.1 Year Old Female
Hi! My name is Janie, but my foster mom calls me Pretty Girl. Are you looking for a beautiful blonde who enjoys a good meal, evening walks, snuggles, and an endless game of fetch? If so, I’m your girl! I’m recovering from heartworm treatment so my foster parents won’t let me go on long walks or play fetch right now, but they say by the end of February I’ll be cleared to play. I can’t wait!
From my pictures you may have noticed that I haven’t missed a meal. What can I say? I like to eat. My fosters have put me on a weight management program to help me get back in shape. Once I’m off this rest period, I’ll be able to exercise more and regain my svelte shape. Are you willing to help me shed these extra pounds?
From Janie’s foster mom: In the 2 weeks that Janie has been with us, she has been a wonderful addition to our home. She settled in quickly to our routine. Within a few days she had demonstrated that she was trustworthy enough to be left out of her crate while we were at work. She hasn’t been around other dogs or cats since we’ve had her, but she did live with another lab previously.
Janie knows basic commands, takes treats gently, and is fully housetrained. She loves to be near you, but isn’t clingy. She enjoys belly rubs and snuggling in the chair while we watch TV. She is going to make a wonderful addition to someone’s family!
Daisy-Lyn - 11.1 Year Old Female
Daisy-Lyn's is simply the sweetest and easiest dog to ever come into our home.
A bigger lady, who is well into her senior years, Daisy-Lyn just wants to love and be loved. At 11-years-old, she still loves to go on walks, but a little arthritis in her ankles limits her distance. When she's not on walks, she enjoys relaxing on her bed or at your feet. We've never had to worry about keeping her in a crate, because she is 100% trustworthy in the house. She is very good with cats & small children. In fact, a pair of 4-year-old twins love laying on her and petting her and telling her how pretty she is. Daisy can't get enough of that! She also enjoys hanging with her foster sister and playing with other dogs she meets on her daily walks.
Ivanka - 7.4 Month Old Female
This lab is truly a puppy at heart. She may be about a year old, but she is still frisky and excited just like a puppy! Ivanka absolutely positively loves playing and running around the house and really loves being outside. This is a high energy Lab that would be great for a family that wants to do a lot of running around and playing. She would love it if you would throw balls and play with toys all day long with her. She gets along really well with other dogs. She loves to play with other dogs but is kind of bossy in her play. Ivanka is potty trained and crate trained. She also knows sit and down. We do not think she would be great with cats, because she chases the squirrels around the yard like crazy!
After a busy day at play, Ivanka does enjoy cuddling on the couch in your lap with her family. With her puppy manners and still learning all the rules of being a good dog in the house, she will do best being crated when you are not home. Small children's toys may be too tempting for this gal. Ivanka needs a high fiber diet or her tummy gets upset. Right now she gets special kibble from the vet. She may eventually be able to be weaned to regular kibble, but also may need to stay on high fiber kibble her whole life. Ivanka is a super friendly, super sweet, very playful lab that would love to find her forever home.
Fredderico - 1.1 Year Old Male
Hello, my name is Fredderico, but my friends call me Freddie, my foster dad calls me Knucklehead, however you can call me anything and I will come running. The truth is I came a long way to get here. I am from far south Texas. How I made it is a complete mystery but here I am! I am a gorgeous 59 pound boy who behaves 100% Lab and also 100% puppy.
I have some good things - I walk great on the leash, ride great in the car, love the grandkids, get along great with all the dogs around here, and I’m even starting to like my crate at night. Now what you can’t do is take your eye off me or I will trade my chew bone for a shoe or pillow. A roll of toilet paper is like prime rib to me and whatever is on the counter top is also fair game. Have not done anything a normal puppy doesn’t do and the good news is that I am very smart. I do not like to be scolded so I learn fast and am very trainable. I love to go on long walks, love the dog park where I can chase the tennis ball, and after exercise I settle down and become a very good boy.
I am looking for a forever home, one with someone who can walk more than half a mile, throw a tennis ball more than 10 yards, and can stay up past ten o’clock. Not asking too much I am thinking. I come available very soon and you better be lined up to see me! I am going to make someone a very good Lab.
Josephine - 5.3 Year Old Female
Josephine is a 5 year old black Lab. She is an older wise dog. She is well behaved. Crate trained… yes. She does like to snuggle on the furniture. Her facial expressions will melt your heart. She has lots of expressions. She’ll follow you wherever you go inside and outside and be right by your side. She will lay in your spot when you are not home. She lays in the other room during dinner when told. And her ability to stay is so impressive!
She loves her treats!!! She is gentle treat eater so kids can feed her. Josephine knows cats are not on the menu but will give them a nice stare down and might try to chase them, if given the opportunity. She does well with her foster cats but is always separated when left alone. Squirrels on the other hand have no mercy they will be chased or treed on a walk. She is a strong on a leash, and could benefit from some training. She knows her routines. Josephine likes to be told bye when you leave and may still look out the window to see you go. For Christmas she might just bring you a gift of her favorite toy to say she loves you!
Reese 2 - 2.8 Year Old Male
Reese 2 is a handsome guy with a beautiful coat who was rescued with his brother Nugget. He is currently getting settled with his foster family, so please check back as he will be available for adoption soon.
Gary - 3.1 Year Old Male
Hi everyone!! My name is Gary but my mom has been calling me Gunner. I have impressed my mom by how smart I am. I know how to sit, lay down, shake and my newest trick is speak. I love going on long walks and playing ball outside. I have a foster sister and we get along really well. I think she sometimes gets tired of me so I think a no cats home would be perfect. I love other dogs though so I would love having a playmate. I just like to play, play, play. My mom says I am perfect because I will cuddle with her when she wants but I also will give her space. I love to be by her side though, especially when she is in the kitchen cooking. She thinks I must’ve been given human food because I like to beg which is something that she says we are working on. If you are looking for a patient, fun loving companion, you have found your match. I can’t wait to meet you!!
Beca - 6.4 Month Old Female
Beca is a lovely young girl! An untreated injury early in her life has meant she's a healthy and happy three-legged pup, 30 pounds and growing. She is incredibly sweet natured and loves people and kids and other dogs, seeking out their company and snuggles. She plays a lot with her foster brother lab (you wouldn't know she's on three legs!) and is great on a leash. She's playful and active but also calm for her age, relatively speaking. She crates well, with no concerns. She is such a darling, such a lovely and affectionate temperament, and will make her furever family so happy!
